There is a classic saying that “sex sells” used in marketing. Well, I believe that in the world of DC and pop-culture we could apply a similar phrase but in our case it goes, “Batman sells”. This is why a series like Epix’s Pennyworth works. We’ve always seen Alfred Pennyworth there for anything Bruce Wayne needs. But what was his story? How did he end up working for the Waynes? What was his life before being a butler?
This is the story of Pennyworth. LRMOnline had the opportunity to see the premiere of the series and speak with the cast last year at San Diego Comic-Con. The series was well enough received that a second season was ordered. It did a good job of focusing on Jack Bannon’s Alfred Pennyworth and sticking in too much Batman mythos that could have made the series very confusing.
Now EPIX has finally released our first look at the second season of Pennyworth. You can check it out above! Down below you can also check out the first poster released for the second season.
Along with this information, we also have a release date. The second season of Pennyworth will premiere on EPIX on December 13th, 2020. A second episode will follow on December 20th. Then a two-part mid-season finale on December 27th. The second half of the season will air sometime in 2021. This is due to the fact that the filming for the second season had been halted due to the COVID outbreak.
Some fun notes about the second season that we have learned so far are that Simon Manyonda, will be playing the character of Lucius Fox. Jessica de Gouw will be playing Melanie Troy. Two eyebrow-raising things from the second season that we have learned are that Thomas Wayne will reveal that he is engaged to someone other than Martha Kane. Also, speaking of Martha, she is pregnant, and its not Thomas’! To find out how this all plays out you will have to tune into the second season of Pennyworth on EPIX!
Also in case you are looking for a more inside scoop of the series, down below, I have also embedded the Pennyworth panel from this past weekend’s NYCC Find the Metaverse. What do you think of the second season reveals so far? Let us know in the comment section below!
